Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Gladiator offers a bit more room for passengers in the extended cab than the RAM 3500. The Jeep Gladiator will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the RAM 3500.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Jeep Gladiator is a better financial choice over the RAM 3500, when considering MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Gladiator is much slimmer than the RAM 3500, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Jeep Gladiator, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the RAM 3500.

Handling
The Jeep Gladiator has a significantly smaller turning radius than the RAM 3500, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the RAM 3500 is clearly the choice over the Jeep Gladiator for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Gladiator is clearly outclassed by the RAM 3500.

Powertrain
The Jeep Gladiator offers much less torque than the RAM 3500, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Jeep Gladiator as you will the RAM 3500. The RAM 3500 has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the Jeep Gladiator.
